Emo for Boys is a well designed & illustrated parody site used to show off a few shirts from FullBleed. I found this link because it was featured prominently in a WDAZ News program warning of the dangers of “Emo”, which, in case you haven’t heard, is short for “Emotional.”

Kudos to Mark from 15posts for finding this beautiful work of animated typography. I watch this and I just want to eat it, it looks so good. I could almost watch a whole movie like this. Maybe. (Don’t you love how the little “Play” button from YouTube actually censors the frame?) It comes from the mad skills of Jarratt Moody. Say What Again.

Toysrevil links to this crazy crafting site of paper Lego StarWars characters. The country that brought us origami takes it one step further with 3D modeling software, a printer, paper, and a stick of glue. If I had a few hundred spare hours in my day, I’d be all over this sh*t!
Using software such as PePaKuRa Designer [PC only] from Tama software, it is possible to import and convert 3D polygon models from various sources, making it easier to design and create your own papercraft models.

Run, don’t walk, to iTunes Canada and download this amazing and FREE audio book by American humourist John Hodgman. The Areas of My Expertise can only be described as fake trivia. You might know Hodgman from The Daily Show, McSweenys, the New York Times Magazine, This American Life, or CBC’s Wiretap. But chances are far greater that you know him simply as ‘PC’ from the ‘Get a Mac’ Advertisements by Apple. Predictably, John ‘PC’ Hodgman uses a Mac.
Paranoia elicits insane responses to the most benign events. A guerrilla marketing campaign (for Aqua Teen Hunger Force) goes nuclear, and instead of taking responsibility for over-reacting, the Cartoon Network shells out two million bucks and the city of Boston acts holier-than-thou. I don’t get it. I know we all need to be careful out there, but shouldn’t we focus our attention on the things that are actual clear and present dangers? More people will die in America from eating shitty food, murdering their families, driving drunk, AIDS, poverty… the list is pretty long. And the threat is tangible. Maybe that’s the problem. It’s easier to mobilize people with abstract fear because they never have to take any responsibility for their actions. You’re either with us, or you play with LiteBrite™. It’s that simple.
